About Us

Our mission: To let introverts everywhere know it’s okay to be who they are. There’s nothing wrong with you because you’re quiet. You’re not broken because you like spending time alone.

We’re Introvert, Dear, the largest online community and publication for introverts in the world.

 About Jenn Granneman

Jenn Granneman has been advocating for introverts since 2013, when she founded Introvert, Dear. She’s the author of the bestselling book, The Secret Lives of Introverts: Inside Our Hidden World. Jenn blogs for Psychology Today, and her writing has been featured on The Huffington Post, The MuseQuiet Revolution, The Mighty, and elsewhere. Speaking as an expert on introversion, she has appeared on numerous radio programs and podcasts. For most of her life, Jenn felt weird, different, and out of place because of her quiet ways; now, she writes about introversion because she doesn’t want other introverts to feel the way she did.

To get personal updates from her, you can follow her on Facebook or Twitter.

What’s Up with the Name ‘Introvert, Dear’?
